Isn't that neat???

Anyways, Check out these most definetly evil scales ( I wont post them because I believe they can be found under the "scales/sweeps" sticky. I might be wrong but if you really want me to post them, ask again)

Natural Minor(aka Aeolian mode), Harmonic Minor (most evil of all), Phrygian mode(my personal favorite), and if you want to start soloing with any of these, I suggest you learn the Minor Pentatonic first

Why don't you try Locrian? it has the flat5 on it (1,b2,b3,4,b5,b6,b7)sounds evil to me...

or try it like in a Harmonic (1,b2,b3,4,b5,6,b7)it's probably more evil because of the sixth tone as in a diminished scale.
